My little children,
let us not love in word,
neither in tongue;
but in deed and in truth.
1 John 3:18 KJV
To love with words alone is like a bowl
So finely made without a bite within.
A love with empty words soon takes its toll;
A promised rain will starve the flower thin.
An act of love speaks volumes by itself;
In service is the truth that can’t be told.
A dictionary sits upon the shelf;
The Living Word does miracles so bold.
To minister to others is sublime,
So do all that you can in truth and deed.
These words upon your screen is just a rhyme;
True poetry is helping those in need.
Enough with words! Your vocal chords can break.
The best love in the world’s the love you make.
